Marilyn Manson's face is plastered on fellow musician Justin Bieber's tour apparel that reads "bigger than satan." Now the shock rocker and self-proclaimed satanist is firing back with a shirt of his own.
Manson took to Instagram Friday to post a picture of himself wearing a Bieber t-shirt. While the image on the black t-shirt is cut off, Bieber's name is in the camera's focus.
The rock-and-roller captioned his photograph "bigger than Bieber."
Two days later, the pair bumped into one another during a night out on the town in Los Angeles after Bieber's Staples Center performance.
"Night out in la with the boys," Bieber simply captioned the image of him and Manson taking a picture.
Jerry Lorenzo designed Bieber's Manson shirt that he wears before countless fans on his "Purpose" tour. Lorenzo is the founder of the clothing line called Fear Of God, which Bieber tapped for some of his tour attire.
"Man, my tour is coming up. I really want you to do it," Lorenzo recalled Bieber telling him in a WWD report.
Bieber is willing to literally wear his faith on his sleeve and has never shied away from speaking up about his Christian faith.
The 22-year-old singer opened up about his relationship with God keeping him from being a bad person.
"I feel like that's why I have a relationship with Him, because I need it. I suck by myself," he said in a GQ magazine interview last month. "Like, when I'm by myself and I feel like I have nothing to lean on? Terrible. Terrible person."
Although he admits to doing "stupid" things, the "Sorry" singer said his actions would be worse without God.
"If I was doing this on my own, I would constantly be doing things that are, I mean, I still am doing things that are stupid, but…It just gives me some sort of hope and something to grasp onto," Bieber said. "...a feeling of security, and a feeling of being wanted, and a feeling of being desired, and I feel like we can only get so much of that from a human."
Bieber came into the public eye as a global phenomenon at only 13-years-old, and despite a few years of being bashed by media for his bad behaviors, he recently is striving to be more like Jesus.
"I just wanna honestly live like Jesus. Not be Jesus... I don't want that to come across weird. He created a pretty awesome template of how to love people and how to be gracious and kind," Bieber told Complex magazine last year. "If you believe it, he died for our sins. Sometimes when I don't feel like doing something, but I know it's right, I remember, I'm pretty sure Jesus didn't feel like going to the cross and dying so that we don't have to feel what we should have to feel."
